Jack Whyte’s ‘Dream of Eagles’ Engulfs Me

I've always been an easy mark for historical fiction. My first degree was in history, and I'm an editor by trade. I'd heard of Jack Whyte over the years but never got into his world, but now I'm in it with his A Dream of Eagles series based on the Roman occupation and eventual withdrawal from England, mixed in with the Arthurian legends. I picked up the entire series at a garage sale last weekend for a few dollars, and have ploughed through two of the books already, enjoying them, if one can enjoy descent into chaos, constant bloodshed, etc. We have no idea how fortunate we are to live in an era, and in a nation, with rule of law.
